WHAT FLORIDA NATIVE PLANT IS BLOOMING TODAY?: PINEBARREN GOLDENROD (Solidago fistulosa)
Generally a fall bloomer, but can show up in Florida at any time of year.
Tall, spreads by suckers or propagate by seed, great backdrop, but not for the small landscape.
Bees and other pollinators, spiders and treefrogs are always found enjoying this beauty.
